Tottenham will attempt to secure player-swap deals this summer, according to the London Evening Standard.

Mauricio Pochettino signed a new five-year contract earlier this week after reportedly receiving promises of increased transfer funds from chairman Daniel Levy.

The likes of Wilfried Zaha, Anthony Martial, Ryan Sessegnon and Matthijs de Ligt are said to be among the club’s priority targets.

And according to the Standard, Spurs will attempt swap deals in order to capture new recruits.

But who will be affected by this method?

Most intriguingly, Manchester United are interested in signing Toby Alderweireld – the Belgian is expected to leave after failing to agree terms on a new contract.

Perhaps Tottenham will use Alderweireld to tempt United into selling Martial.

What’s more, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Moussa Sissoko or Fernando Llorente offered to Crystal Palace in part-exchange for Zaha.

As for Sessegnon, Fulham could conceivably interested in taking a young player – Josh Onomah for instance – on loan next term if they fail to win promotion to the Premier League.

Although they rarely happen, there are certainly plenty of opportunities for Spurs to take advantage of swap deals.
